I lost my knitting mojo a bit a couple of years ago after a handful of truly dire projects when I tried to get into garment knitting, and have knitted nothing but socks ever since.
However, a bit of gentle nudging from Emily and I've been going to Social Fabric's knit club a couple of times a month since Christmas, and I've been really enjoying picking up the needles again. I still haven't branched into anything but socks, but have a couple of projects planned for as soon as I pick some new yarn. I also finally worked out that the reason my garment knitting was such a disaster was that I was knitting projects that were a joy to knit, but actually I would never have picked out in a shop to buy and wear as finished items of clothing. So my new mantra, when looking at projects is "would I buy this?" It only makes the cut if the answer is yes.
This is all a very long winded way of mentioning to you that I'm Ravelry (I'm alifeinlists there) and I'd love to see what some of you are up to on there too, so do leave a comment and let me know where to find you on there. I'd also forgotten what a well thought through site Ravelry is. Organisation of projects, wish lists, patterns, yarn etc is truly excellent, and it really makes it easy to find something new to knit. So pleasing.
I hope you all have a fabulous week!
